"Is It Me, Or Is It You (90)" - Song lyrics (translator):

Miss bowleg - kiss-teeth
broad-hips - cross-eye
once-a-month perm-‘ead
Sistren - Yuh know sey
de’flavor from I’man’s touch - is
it’s multi facetted - fin’ga-lickin’
to the point off everlasting!

Is it Me, or is it You
to be blamed
for da’hurtin’ - You?
is it Me, or is it You
causing the ache
inside You?
all the boys in town
have this thing
about You
all the girls
they are jealous
of You
but still inside
You’re hurting
say - You hurting
well blue
Baby - You’re hurting
You.

Is it Me, or is it You
to be blamed
for Your hurting blues?
don’t want to give Your love
to a Lover - that’s true
the pain You feel
from hurting Me
it’s tearing You
coming right through
breaking Your heart
right in two
a’meck John Kanoe wid skin-teeth
a call monkey bo~bo.


Is it Me, or is it You
who is -- to be blamed
for da’hurtin’ - bubblin’ You?
com’ ripe-up Yuh inanna
inna Mi run-doung
meck A’ bubble pon yuh
like a’ bald-‘ead … who used to be
a’ Natty Dread
diddle~daddlin’ in style
wid you
now Sistren
the boys in town
dem ‘ave this t’ing
‘bout You
the girls
they/a’ spend (their) time
being jealous
of You …
but still inside You’re
hurting well blue
antagonizing a Lover
that’s true
don’t want to give Your lovie~dubbie
to a Lover
that’s true - to You.


Is it Me, or is it You
to be blamed
for the hurting blues?
it’s tearing You
coming right through
breaking Your heart
RIGHT - IN - TWO
Yuh red-eye friends dem
a’ chat fart an’ monkey fou~fou
a’ steal yuh fancy-ness wid
flea-market - throw-back
once to be pon sale
no-flavor ice cream - fudge.
